    My tallest one, all of 2.75", just fell over in the pot. How tall are yours, Capslock?

    Hmmm. Mine's about 3 inches tall, at least the biggest one is. I don't know how big they get, these are my first ones! They grow nicely, though, and I'll have lots of seed soon, hopefully.

    in theory, theres no limit to how tall they can get. just takes time.

    if you snip off all offshoots, i bet they can get taller in a shorter amount of time.

    I do think they when they hit a certain limit the tip would turn brown and stop growing. Sometimes, an offshoot would grow from the brown material. Mine can reach 10-12 inches.

    Mine reached over a foot tall before they died back. If the stem cascades so that the growing tip is lower than any other point on the stem, the growth will start from another point. To get tall plants, you have to keep the stem upright.

    My biggest one, all of 2.75" is in need of a shoulder to lean on. Capslock, my plants are a little younger and a little smaller than yours. Probably also a little behind in development.
